As I watched the first presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney last night I kept hearing Howard Cosell’s voice in the back of my mind… “Down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier!” I expected Mitt Romney to fair pretty well in a head to head debate with Barack Obama, I was [...]
Four years ago John McCain shocked the political establishment by choosing the Alaska Governor Sarah as his running mate… Mitt Romney announcement of Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) as his Vice Presidential pick in Norfolk, VA. is no less bold: Paul Ryan, is a young, articulate, intelligent, energetic, courageous, conservative whose budget and long-term entitlement reform [...]
Oh boy, judging by the comment threads at Hot Air and Breitbart, S.E.

I’m not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net there. If it needs [...]
Lord help us… Senators Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham are at it again, this time pushing a monumentally bad idea, called the Currency Exchange Rate Oversight Reform Act through the Senate: The world has done surprisingly well since the Great Recession began at not making things worse with trade protectionism. But that may soon change [...]

Poll Question: If the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary were being held today who would you vote for?
I’m not crazy about Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee so they’re not even on my short list.

Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana [...]
